Elementary Schoolers Experience Farm Days

First graders from 8 Virginia Beach schools visited Hunt Club Farm for the Virginia DARE Soil Water Conservation District’s Annual Farm Days. To bring students, teachers and chaperones closer to agriculture, The Dairy Alliance’s Roseann Liberatore and Virginia Cooperative Extension Service agents gave classes a virtual dairy tour. While students enjoyed milk, Roseann provided information about cow nutrition, how cows reduce food waste with their 4-chamber stomach and how cow manure fertilizes crops. Everyone was thankful to our dairy farmers after learning about the hard work that goes into producing our milk.
